Joe Woke's Alter Ego

Joe Woke was born to an extremely rich family, his father was a stockbroker and Joe was educated at Eton. He studied philosophy with the intention of becoming a teacher but his homosexuality, an addiction and a fallout with his father changed his direction.

Joe became an eco warrior, an activist against social injustice, racism and a defender of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA) movement and women's rights.

He was also a drug addict on welfare who loved his cannabis. Joe enjoyed the soothing and calming effect but it was not enough and he often exclaimed, "like the trip was too smooth man." Graduation to a harder drug was inevitable and so he moved onto 'snorting' coke and watched as his nostrils started to rot and fall away. Joe, did not care but yet again his trips were beginning to have less effect and the sex was not as good.

He moved onto heroin and that's when his alter ego kicked in. They heard him shouting and ranting in his London bed-sit for a few days. Eventually, the noise stopped and when they broke down the door they found him dead and naked on the bathroom floor with a hypodermic needle stuck in his left arm.

His neighbours searched the flat and found his writings on sheets of paper scattered all over the floor. They conveyed his thoughts on philosophy, worldly matters and religion. Although they were of no interest to the intruders, I was able to retrieve them and set them down herein.

Joe Woke was unable to cope with his sexuality, he concealed it, he hated it, he put up a great fight but in the end he succumbed to it. His Eton friends shunned him at Eton and in later life they laughed at his misfortunes and provided no solace to his plight.

Very much like George Michael he took to drugs which ravaged his body and in the end he passed away at a relatively young age. Only then, and many years after his death, did some, who had become wiser through living in older age, relate to his life and express sympathy and sadness for his passing.
